My Edwin Watts has about 24 Dozen of the Tour Blacks left, each priced at $29.99. I never played the ball. Is it worth $30 a dozen?

I’d be willing to buy most or even all of them if I could cut a deal for around $20/doz

Buy all that you can because people will pay slightly more. YOu might be able to make some profit.

I, personally, would just buy them to play them.

A good replacement for Platinum could / would be the new Chromesoft. Black would be chromesoft X. Some say Bridgestone has resemblance but, I have the least amount of knowledge with them.

I liked the Srixon XV but I found it different.

I still have 4 dozen tour black but Iím working on a solution for the long term.

Such a shame!

Love them, would recommend stockpiling a few. Fingers crossed for Ping doing something in the ball industry since they acquired Nikes patents for golf balls amongst other things

I read recently that Bridgestone made the earlier Nike balls. Don't know how true, or when it ended, or if it ever did.
Would be great if one of the newer Bridgestone balls was secretly a newer Platinum.

They didn't buy the ball patents.

Do you know who did or if they remain with Nike?

Ping bought the patents to using the RZN material in woods. I'm not sure the legal issues if someone would make a ball similar to the RZN line.

Just updated my block list. But honestly, what a find. I've been scouring the internet for more since I'm down to my last sleeve.

Absolute best ball I've ever played.
Got 14 daggum golf clubs, but none of 'em hit the ball straight.

I forgot I had a tour platinum in my shag bag when I played Sunday. Reached in for one after literally throwing my Kirkland in a pond because of how scuffed it was after so few shots on it. It probably still has nothing to do with the ball but I tied my all time best round on that course for that day.

The tour platinum and black is a milestone ball for me. First eagles. All time low rounds on a few courses.

I still have two dozen black and 9 dozen platinum. I just donít wanna use them. Still the best ball Iíve ever played and thatís saying something.

I'm saving my last sleeve of Platinums for the apocalypse. Gonna kiss my wife and son and head out into the brimstone for one more round.
Probably lose all 3 before #5, but...

I'll tell ya what, I played 3 Kirklands and lost all 3 in 7 holes yesterday. Took a Razn Platinum out of the shag bag (used for chipping practice a few weeks ago) and played that clear through the 17th. Unfortunately, I lost it some horrendous rough and couldn't find it. I tell ya what, it was losing a family member. The balls just perform.
